Fender’s American Ultra series is arguably the most advanced range that the legendary company has ever produced. Developed to meet the needs of the discerning contemporary bassist, the Ultra Jazz Bass fittingly combines ‘60s cutting-edge with modern-day cutting-edge.

The results speak for themselves; unparalleled comfort thanks to a compound fretboard radius, Ultra-Noiseless pickups offering pristine tones, striking finishes – the works!

Body & Neck

An Ash body makes for a lightweight construction, as well as offering an extremely well-balanced tonal palette. Deep lows, throaty midrange and pronounced treble clarity like you wouldn’t believe – the typical Jazz bass flexibility taken to the next level.

A Maple neck adds additional bite and attack, not to mention smooth playability thanks to the neck’s satin finish and rolled edges. As mentioned earlier, a compound fretboard radius makes the Ultra Jazz Bass neck an absolute breeze to play – perfect for lengthy sessions and challenging live situations.

Electronics & Hardware

Fender’s Noiseless range does exactly what it says on the tin. With the new Ultra Noiseless pickup range, it’s stepped up a notch. In this model, you’ll get a pair Ultra Noiseless Vintage Jazz Bass pickups. Alnico 5 magnets and vintage-style voicing combine perfectly with the carefully calculated tonewood combination and construction. Add advanced switching to the mix, and you’ve got dynamic, punchy response that can be tweaked to suit any style with absolute precision.

The hardware appointments are the final piece of the puzzle. The combination of tapered-shaft vintage paddle tuners and bone nuts maximises tuning stability, so you can play with peace of mind. The HiMass bridge drastically improves resonance and sustain, allowing the wood & pickups to truly sing. All in all, the Ultra Jazz Bass is the ultimate refined take on Fender’s alternative bass guitar.
